How Foreign is the US? Colby Cosh's Travelblogging
The whole question of how culturally distinctive English Canada is within North America is one of those chicken-and-egg half full/half empty things that are best enjoyed after a joint (instead of writing the bleedin' Globe, dammit). Even a Canadian nationalist hero like Grant couldn't live without the concept of "North America," and even the most continentalist-minded of our fellow citizens shake their heads at strangers talking to you in elevators (about something other than the weather... and with eye contact...). Anyway, Cosh does it well here.
